We can all breathe again

Golly, that was an intense 24 hours, wasn't it? As you're no doubt aware, the PlayStation Network went down yesterday after a particularly nasty DDoS attack. If you didn't lay witness to the carnage, rest assured that several were justifiably peeved at the online service's intermittent blackout. Thankfully, the outage didn't last quite as long as the last time, and no personal details were breached.

Indeed, it seems that everything is under control now. However, the big question on everyone's lips is whether or not today's scheduled maintenance in Europe will still go ahead. And luckily, the answer is a resounding no. Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, the Japanese giant confirmed that you'll be able to enjoy all of the online services you can shake a stick at.

"In light of today’s issue, the networks will not undergo the regularly scheduled maintenance, which was planned for Monday, August 25," the platform holder said. "We will provide an update shortly for when the maintenance will be rescheduled." Are you happy to see that the PSN won't be seeing another interruption?
